Escape into the action at Camp Wind-in-the-Pines. Test your skills at our state-of-the-art challenge and adventure facility. Scale our 20-foot rock face wall or try a different spin on climbing in the bouldering cave. See camp from a new angle on the 35-foot high ropes course or perfect your teamwork closer to the ground on the low ropes course. Explore historic Plymouth and southeastern Massachusetts on exciting day trips—resident campers can even visit Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket for an island excursion. Half-week sessions are a great option for new campers to try camp for the first time. Plus, every week you’ll have the chance to enjoy a wide variety of activities like art, cooking, swimming or boating in Gallows Pond, drama, games and more!

Typical Day at Camp

No two days are the same at Camp Wind-in-the-Pines! At the beginning of each session, you'll work with counselors to build a schedule centered around your unit's interests. Counselors will then take the ideas of all the campers and put them together for a great session that combines program specialty areas and the activities you choose!

An emphasis on building friendships, confidence and leadership skills is incorporated into every activity. At Wind-in-the-Pines each day will be filled with laughter, exploration and discovery.


About the Director

This will be Sarah "Moose" Kelley's 5th summer at Wind-in-the-Pines and her 4th summer as the resident camp director. Moose has been a Girl Scout for 20 years and cherishes all her summers spent at Girl Scout camp, both as a camper and as a staff member. When it comes to camp, Moose loves it all! She believes camp is a great place for girls to grow and learn valuable life lessons. Her favorite camp activities include the lake-swim, dress up days and campfires. Moose received a BS in Outdoor Adventure Leadership at Ithaca College in Ithaca, NY, and enjoys exploring the outdoors in her free time. During the school year, Moose works as an outdoor educator in the New England area for Nature's Classroom.


Sleeping Quarters

Campers who stay at Wind-in-the-Pines will live in platform tents. There are 3-5 girls in each tent. Each girl will have a cot with a mattress and small wooden cubby. A bathroom is located near each unit with flush toilets, handsinks, two shower stalls, and electricity. Hot showers are located in the central shower house. Each unit has a fire pit for cookouts. Counselors stay in quarters with other staff right by the campers' quarters. Each unit has a covered pavilion for rainy day space. Bug netting and poles can be purchased from the Trading Post.

Health & Safety

Camp Wind-in-the-Pines is an American Camp Association accredited camp. This means that a nationally recognized organization comes in every 3 years to make sure everything we do (from the meals we serve to the programs we plan) is done in a safe way. By selecting an ACA accredited camp you can be assured your camper is safe.

Our camp is also licensed by the Plymouth Board of Health. The local Board of Health has separate local and state standards of health and safety with which we comply.


What to Bring to Camp

Packing for camp can be very hard if you don’t know what to bring for your stay, especially if you are a first time camper. If you're wondering what you can and cannot bring to camp, view a complete packing list (PDF) that will work for all our camp programs. We recommend packing in a camp trunk that can fit under your bed or a soft duffle bag. Please label EVERYTHING with your full name. Visit the Girl Scout Shop for camping essentials!
